Unique Angled Trough cuts total installation time by 80%
It’s tough enough for electrical contractors to meet specifications and deadlines within a given budget. Why wouldn’t you take advantage of technology that saves your team from outdated, unnecessary manual assembly and labor?

The Hoffman Angled Trough helps cut total installation time by 80% for electrical contractors who traditionally have had to manually bend 90-degree conduits for wire distribution. Created for use in wire distribution, junctions and terminations in a variety of indoor commercial applications, including above and below the panel, the Angled Trough’s patented angled design provides flexibility for wire distribution, frees up valuable real estate on the wall, and simplifies mounting and assembly.

Customers already are enthusiastically embracing how the Hoffman Angled Trough is changing electrical contracting.

“The Angled Trough is the enclosure that alleviates the labor, time, cost, and manpower it takes to make 90-degree conduit bends down to a large MCC center, and allows us to meet our job deadlines much easier,” said Greg Bills, a senior applications engineer at Walker Industrial.

“The manual process of bending conduits to ready them for wires can take up to 45 minutes – now, with the Angled Trough, distributing wires and installing the enclosure on average only takes eight minutes, Bills said. “That is a substantial gain in labor and cost savings,” he said, adding it also has helped reduce job-related injuries. “It simplifies the installation process.”

In addition to customer accolades, the Hoffman Angled Trough is winning rave reviews from industry pundits – including winning the prestigious “Showstopper” award for innovation at the NECA show in 2017. Considered the premier electrical construction industry event, the NECA Show brings together the best of the best in power, light and communication technology from around the world.

“Our focus is to reduce installation time and costs while improving safety – and we’re thrilled our customers and the industry’s experts agree,” said Matt Behrns, Director of Product Marketing. “For more than 70 years at Hoffman, we’ve remained committed to providing tailored solutions for reliable protection that help sustain – and advance – the industries we serve.”
